From the Publisher
Editors Note The current global financial crisis carries a made in America label. In this forthright and incisive book, Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz explains how America exported bad economics, bad policies, and bad behavior to the rest of the world, only to cobble together a haphazard and ineffective response when the markets finally seized up. Drawing on his academic expertise, his years spent shaping policy in the Clinton administration and at the World Bank, and his more recent role as head of a UN commission charged with reforming the global financial system, Stiglitz outlines a way forward, building on ideas that he has championed his entire career: restoring the balance between markets and government, addressing the inequalities of the global financial system, and demanding more good ideas (and less ideology) from economists. Freefall is an instant classic, combining an enthralling whodunit account of the current crisis with a bracing discussion of the broader economic issues at stake.
First Line The only surprise about the economic crisis of 2008 was that it came as a surprise to so many.
Annotation Pulitzer-Prize winning economist Paul Stiglitz, whose MAKING GLOBALIZATION WORK shed much light on the need to improve how governments and markets behave in the interconnected world economy, examines the causes of the financial crisis of 2008. Much of the blame goes to the United States, says Stiglitz--primarily for its bad policies and its failures to adequately regulate financial institutions. Stiglitz, who is critical of both the Bush and Obama administrations' response to the crisis, proposes deep reforms that are intended to bring order and rationality to the unbalanced global economy and to prepare us for the great challenges that lie ahead.
